Sharing pictures sometimes is enlightening to those that share.
I was showing off some old photos of Bears...
And noticed... WOW that is a small Black Bear.
THEN I remembered a story that I heard the Old Trappers talk about.
The area was known for having the LARGEST Grizzly Bears next to the Kodiak
One mentioned that some of the black bears in the area don't get over 125 lbs.
Those small bears can scramble up trees and avoid getting eaten.

Pygmy bears is what this group are..

These 3 pictures were unusual in the fact that somehow they took so many Pics.
AND this bear doesn't look like a cub. Nope

Cool stuff right there. Great pictures.
Those pics are over 90 years old.
That's my Mom keeping an eye on the Pygmy Bear
We scanned these photos in nearly 20 years ago.
Those old pictures were always more special.. People showing off a new car
a bunch of people heading out on a trip. Picnics and such. Bears too.
